Warming Winter Soup

I made a wonderful soup for my husband’s family Friday after Thanksgiving.  One of my nieces wasn’t feeling so good and she is a vegetarian so I came up with this vegetable soup for her.  Its very similar to a soup I found in the Williams Sonoma recipe file.  I made kielbasa on the side to add to the soup for those of us who are carnivores.  Here’s what you will need:

1 Tbsp. butter

1 red pepper, chopped

1 yellow onion, chopped

1/2 butternut squash, peeled and cubed

2 cans white beans, rinsed

64 oz. chicken or vegetable stock

1 bunch kale or Swiss chard, coarsely chopped

1 Polska Kielbasa (optional)


Heat butter in a stock pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat.   Add the pepper and onion and sauté until soft and fragrant (about 2-3 minutes).  Add squash and sauté until softened.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add chicken stock and beans and bring to a boil.  Turn down to a simmer for 30 minutes.  Remove from heat and add kale.  Brown kielbasa and slice.  Serve.  Yum!
